Washi from Ayabe is known as Kurotani washi after the village where it has been produced since ancient times. For 800 years, Kurotani paper-makers have cultivated their own supply of high quality mulberry trees, and continue to produce mulberry-fibre washi to this day. Local artisans use their wealth of experience to create products which make the most of the inherent beauty and strength of handmade paper.
